KDE 3.5 Themes

Source (link to git-repo or to original if based on someone elses unmodified work): Add the source-code for this project on


From the very beginning this Theme Package was designed to be a complete system makeover from startup to shutdown. This includes a Grub Splash image and a Boot Splash theme for Splashy. Also included is a complete sound theme, using the silvertheme system sounds from hermes.

I have included the Splashy deb package for Kubuntu users as well as the theme package. As always there are complete instructions for installation and setup.

All background images are 1280 X 800 except for the Splashy backgrounds which are 1024 X 768

This is a complete system theme package put together from various packages at, and a background I got off the Internet. I as the packager only cleaned up and fixed small issues. I did create the KDM, Ksplash and Splashy packages using existing works but none of the artwork is mine. The following elements from were used to create this package:

The Background Wallpaper is from the original wallpaper was on a white background, no artist name given. I took the original image and converted it to a 256 Grayscale png to sharpen the edges and then superimposed that over the brushed metal background originally used in my Light_Metal_Tux theme.

Kickoff buttons are from the ALSO7A KBFX Button set by Andre Luiz. Converted by me for use with Kickoff.

Ksplash Screen is by me

KDM theme is by me

The Icons used in the KDM Theme are from and are free to use in non commercial applications.

Cursors are the Nouveau set by anl0ne. There are four sets but the Onyx Small looks the best with this scheme.

Color Scheme is by me, a simple modified version of ljogerst's Linux Grey color scheme renamed to BlackNSilver

System Sounds are the silvertheme sey by hermes

The Steel Icon set by Michael Doches is included in my package. Those wanting the Dark-Glass Icon set will need to download it from here:

Sorry for using RapidShare again but BestSharing is having upload issues. Do not use KGet to download this package as it will balk with RapidShare

This is a really great theme. I have been looking for a theme that changes every aspect of KDE.

I am having one problem. The mouse cursors will not install. I followed the instructions on the README file to the letter, but when I try to install the mouse theme, I get a message telling me that it is not a valid cursor theme archive. I used the on in the theme archive, when that did not work, I downloaded the mouse theme by itself, which did not work either.

I would like to complete the theme. Could you please offer any suggestions on getting this to work.

Thanks in advance.

Try unpacking the tarball the cursors are in and copying the cursors folder to /usr/share/icons and then see if you can select the cursors after you do that. If not then we can try other things. You can contact via the send message option that will pop up if you hover over my picture in the top right hand corner and we can work this out. I had absolutely no issues gettng the mouse theme to work so lets look at possible issues.
